With good +p ammunition like what's available from Black Hills, Cor Bon or Buffalo Bore I always figured a 9mm would get me through the night just fine as long as I did my part. I load mine with Buffalo Bore 124g+p+ these days but I've carried Black Hills 115g+p jhp ammo with complete confidence in the past and would again. I own and carry .45s and .40s but I'm not convinced they offer a huge advantage over a 9mm these days. Ammunition selection is critical with a .45 too if you want dependable expansion performance. Of the three I think the .40 is probably the most forgiving in that regard. But I like them all.
